New Wave Song of the Day #2 - Rapture - Blondie

Here's another classic by Deborah Harry and the gang.  This one was a huge smash and is considered to be one of the very first "rap" songs to be such a hit. The tune came at a time when the band was at the height of its popularity and it melded various genres of music, including rap, reggae, new wave and pop, in one song.  The video is as iconic as the song, and it features hip hop impresario Fab Five Freddy and is very memorable from those MTV years.  Check it out...
